A shot across Color's bow

Fini comments on the recent post from ProLost that discusses a filmmaker who used both Colorista and Magic Bullet Looks to finish an entire feature:

"I've found the control surface easily doubles my productivity (you can read my initial experience here). So a 90 minute feature color corrected with a mouse could easily take 5 working days... just for the initial grade. And that's without even getting into establishing a look. And look creation in Color is an exercise in patience + fortitude + luck..."

Update: Fini explicately asked for control surface support in the next version of Magic Bullet; Steve Hullfish has a quick look at the JL Cooper Eclipse panel in his new blog CUT.N.COLOR.
